If you look back to your younger years, what do you think of?
While your younger days were hopefully filled with happy memories, they were probably also filled with some challenges you overcame.
You probably experienced the heartache of unrequited love. You may have experienced unpleasant challenges as you struggled to make it on your own financially. Breaking into a career and working long hours may have been hard on your mind and spirit.
As you age, many of those worries fall behind you. You might find a spouse, work your way up in your career, have children, and/or become more financially stable. You probably also feel less stressed about the things that used to weigh you down because over the years you’ve gained perspective. Things just seem to get better as you age.
So next time you think about getting older, think instead about getting happier. You have a lot of happiness to look forward to.
